Subject: RE: Bright Phoebus/Watersons/Bulmer
I caught some of the programme also and one of the facts given was that of the 2,000 records pressed 1,000 were substandard and unplayable. It was Bill Leader as stated who drew up the original contracts and who produced the LP. It was Bill Leader who owned the stock of records and who gave the explanation of where half the pressings went. The debate starts with Bill Leader as far as I can see all Dave Bullmer has done is to buy a lot if not all Topic Records, Bill Leader's, bankrupt stock. Dave Bullmer around this time was driving round in an old car with one windscreen wiper that worked and with selotape holding his NHS Glasses together. I'm not suprised that Dave felt ease talking quiet openly about Bright Phoebus I don't think he has anything to hide.
